The Annual Fall Social Work Conference affords an opportunity to bring national speakers along with the latest research to child welfare practitioners in Alabama. Through the Title IV-E partnership between the Alabama Department of Human Resources and the Alabama Higher Education Consortium on Child Welfare, The University of Alabama School of Social Work is able to host the conference every year focusing on a different aspect of public child welfare.
The many workshops will continue the discussion of issues related to child well-being as well as workforce well-being. This conference is designed with the public child welfare workforce in mind but would be beneficial to anyone working with at risk children and their families - school social workers, therapists, foster parents, child placing agencies just to name a few.
The 17th Annual Fall Social Work Conference issues this Call for Proposals from students, faculty and practitioners currently practicing in a variety of public child welfare disciplines. Presentation submissions will be evaluated for relevance and significance to the overall concept of public child welfare: safety, permanency and well-being. Interested parties are asked to limit their abstracts to 500 words or less, plus a short summary to include highlighted content and learning objectives.
Submissions must be received by August 1, 2018.
The 17th Annual Fall Social Work Conference will be held October 18- 19, 2018 at the Bryant Conference Center in Tuscaloosa, AL.
